Mazars achieves HITRUST CSF assessor designation to enhance client data integrity, mitigate risk and meet compliance requirements

New York, NY – March 23, 2021
Mazars, a leading audit, tax, and advisory firm in the US, today announced that it has been designated as a HITRUST CSF Assessor by HITRUST.

Mazars is now able to offer services using the HITRUST CSF, a comprehensive security framework that addresses the multitude of security, privacy and regulatory challenges facing healthcare organizations in order to comply with healthcare, third-party and government regulations and standards. Originally used mostly by healthcare groups, the importance of HITRUST has spread across industries, particularly for those who collect and must safeguard protected personal information like hospitality, ecommerce, and financial services, and is now among the most recognized standards for assuring data integrity.

Robert Kastenschmidt, Partner, National Consulting & Advisory Leader, commented, “HITRUST is the cornerstone of healthy cybersecurity and risk management positioning. As the world continues to become more technologically interconnected, more PPI will also be at risk from cyberattacks. By providing these services, we’re helping our clients reduce their risk and have a better foundation for future growth.”

Gil Enos, National Healthcare Practice Leader, added, “Healthcare groups have long used HITRUST as their standard to meet compliance with HIPAA requirements. It’s the most trusted set of benchmarks for ensuring an organization is appropriately handling sensitive client data. What we’re seeing now, particularly due to new laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, is that companies in a range of industries need this service, so we’re leveraging our existing expertise to address that urgent need.”
